4. Board Game: Mage Knight Board Game [Average Rating:8.10 Overall Rank:27]
Board Game: Mage Knight Board Game
Since we've got the time, I'm thinking about setting up a game of Mage Knight. If you're interested, chime in below and we can figure out a time.

The Mage Knight board game puts you in control of one of four powerful Mage Knights as you explore (and conquer) a corner of the Mage Knight universe under the control of the Atlantean Empire. Build your army, fill your deck with powerful spells and actions, explore caves and dungeons, and eventually conquer powerful cities controlled by this once-great faction.

Microbadge: Golden Board Game CollectorMicrobadge: Silver Board Game Collector
From the humble beginnings of civilization through the historical ages of progress, mankind has lived, fought and built together in nations. Great nations protect and provide for their own, while fighting and competing against both other nations and nature itself. Nations must provide food and stability as the population increases. They must build a productive economy. And all the while, they must amaze the world with their great achievements to build up their heritage as the greatest nations in the history of mankind!

Nations is an intense historical board game for 1–5 players that takes 40 minutes per player to play. Players control the fate of nations from their humble start in prehistoric times until the beginning of World War I. The nations constantly compete against each other and must balance immediate needs, long-term growth, threats, and opportunities.

Do you get excited about train games?
GET ON THIS. This is a rail building fantasy map. It's for the heavy, experienced super gamers who are looking for a new rail building challenge!

I'd be willing to run a 4p of Le Havre if there is interest. I haven't been able to play it in forever which is way too long.
